George Musser’s ELF II

George Musser and his father built the wild-looking ELF II seen below. On top of the ELF II are the Netronics Giant Board, two 16K RAM boards, and an EPROM programmer. Below are the ACE expansion bus and video card. George writes that the last time he really used it he was in high school, developing a word processor to write papers for class.

Apparently Scientific American magazine, where George later worked as the Astronomy Editor, has somewhat more modern word processing equipment. But is it more fun?
